OpenSesame!

OpenSesame!

A commercial package by Charles River Associates, OpenSesame! attempts to help you with your Macintosh Finder activities. It suggests rules to you, e.g. "I notice you launch Eudora on startup, would you like me to put it in the Startup Folder?". OpenSesame! uses neural net techniques to attempt to make sense out of your actions. Unfortunately, OpenSesame! gets virtually no cooperation from the operating system, and therefore makes a lot of common sense mistakes like "I notice you open Eudora after you open Inbox..." However, I think OpenSesame! is the commercial example of AI- based Learning Interface Agents, and a herculean programming effort.
